April comedy

Is Matt Goldich, like, the busiest comedian I know this month? So busy that he still hasn't told me what "Awkward Family Dinner" on Sunday is - I'm dying to know. I should really get my ass over to R Bar one of these weeks, I will, soon, really.

Also coming up very soon:

Tomorrow (Friday, April 15th), Sara Schaefer (is Obsessed With You)

Sunday is Comedy Pro Shop:

This week we present "A Very Special Comedy Pro Shop" that will
enlighten, inspire and lift your spirits. Susan Prekel will tell you
about overcoming a relationship with an abusive cat, Jesse Joyce will
display the triumph of the human spirit over double pneumonia, Ophira
Eisenberg will warn of the dangers of poking your eye out, and more!

The show is still free, still on Sundays, and still features some of
New York's best professional comics in an intimate setting. Come by if
you can!

And from the fabulous Michelle Collins (I'll just quote her entire email cause I'm lazy - all I can say is I can't WAIT for WYSIWYG even though I have a book party to go to right beforehand that I'll be running to PS 122 from):

Friends, Family, and People I Rarely to Never Speak To,

I'll be reading and The WYSIWYG Blogger Talent Show ( this Tuesday, April 19 at 7:30 p.m., based loosely on my daily adventures seen at, along wiiiiiiith:

Elizabeth Spiers (
Daniel Radosh (

Jon Friedman (

Brian Grosz (

Frank Beekman (

Andy Horwitz (

The show's theme is Minimum Rage: Work Slaves Revolt!, which, for those of you that really know me, know that I spend 18 hours of my day plotting how I plan on quitting this nightmare of a job. Most of the time that fantasy revolves around me in 6-inch lucite heels, daisy dukes and a halter, waltzing into my boss's office and letting loose a streaming tirade of what a senile lunatic she is. But hey: When you get your paychecks in bags of rice, you must be doing something right.

Anyway, come to the show! (Read on for more appearances...)

Rejection vs. Reputation

I may try to do both, or neither. Let me end it there before I embarrass myself.
